baking lights

hi there,
is it possible to bake and have a tga output with a different resolution than 72 dpi?is it possible to have an output of 128 dpi for example?

allright! resolution theory!

Ok, I am not answering directly to your question. Instead, I will explain you that resolution thing.

--- Dpi's - dots per inch, or ppi's (points per inch). By logic, resolution is the quantity of points per inch. For example, for print, normally it's 300 dpi's and digital work (TV, Computer) it's ALLWAYS at 72 dpi's.

The thing is, you can use that 128 dpi's image, but that's wasting memory. More - I think max only reads at 72 dpi's.

The trick is to open your 128dpi's image in photoshop, go to image size and see the pixel value and note them down. In resolution, put it at 72dpi's. Change the pixel values to the ones you've noted. Click OK.

Now you have a 72dpi's image with the same information that you had in your 128dpi's image. Exactly the same pixels. Different resolution.

I Hope that this made any sense.
Anything you need, send me a pvt message.

AH! One thing more!

in lights, the thing that counts is the total number of pixels in your image, not the resolution.
